>>3580540>/p/'s idea of creativity>bokeh flowers, VSCO, mountains
IDK if you spend a lot of time here or not, but p actively shits on most of that stuff. Mountains get a pass because they're conventionally beautiful and we have at least one local (Alex) who shoots them really well.>most board members would say my work isn't photography and cheating
You really, really don't spend time here. NatureGuy does setups like your pic related and pots them here, nobody actively gives him shit over the fact that they're "staged". You've developed this bizarre complex where you're somehow superior to everyone else because you do things with photography that nobody else on /p/ does (which is veritably fucking false but anyways).>if only people realized how staged they all are
Anyone who's not visually illiterate could tell that photo, while creative and dramatic for sure, is not real after looking more than a couple of seconds.>all the silly landscape buffs would be chimping out>how much better their boring shots are because they're authentic
Whatever you use your camera for, the final print is "authentic" as it is not. I'm all for being creative and different, but again, I wouldn't develop a complex over how much better I am because I chose to make a fake tornado instead of literally risking my life to photograph a real one.
